We really need to thank someone for the work he does for our server.

Everyone, I know I have not been very active for awhile. I try to keep on top of things.  But there is someone that has been doing amazing work for our server and I want him to feel apprciated.

So everyone take some time to thank Glguy for being such a great admin. I know he has put in a huge amount of work keeping the server up and running and I truly appreciate it.  An example of the work he has put into the server we are running on MC 1.6.4 on the main world and we are the only active server with Runecraft working on that version of MC.

Thank you Glguy for all the hard work!

Work continues on the new world for next year.

And I want your input.  The new way I am making the world gives me alot more control over how it looks.  But I do want some input on the way it will look from the users.

There Is a poll over on the right bar of the website.  Give me your feedback.

Also if you want please take some time to make some trees and bushes and small things to spawn all over the new world. 😀

Minecraft 1.7

So I know 1.6.4 released several weeks ago, and we have yet to update the server.  I am not going to update to 1.6.4 because in the next couple of weeks 1.7 will be released and then once server and plugins are updated we will update to 1.7.

So keep in mind the new launcher can let you run 1.7 and 1.6.2 on the same computer.

Have fun!

PDXLan November

Just wanted everyone to know about an upcomming big lan party here in Portland Oregon November 8th-10th.
Greetings!

PDXLAN is hosting the annual PDX-November event to help raise food for those in need. The LAN is PACKED with sponsors and prizes. PACKED. Last year we raised nearly 25,000 pounds!

We are announcing more sponsors every day via Facebook, but wanted you to know the SWEET deal NVIDIA has given us.

If the LAN hits 20,000 pounds of food, EACH attendee will get a copy of Metro Last Light courtesy of NVIDIA. In addition other sponsors are providing prizes for people who bring 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50 pounds of food. The 50 pound unlock will either be a choice of three games, OR a Yet to be released game! *wink* (We are awaiting final confirmation on that one)

There are less than 100 tickets left to this 400 person LAN party. Buy a ticket, bring some food, and you will leave with more than $100 in prizes GUARANTEED and have the opportunity to do some major good this holiday season. The LAN is November 8-10, in Portland Oregon.

If you have already signed up, please forward this to a person who has never been to PDXLAN before. PDX-November events are laid back, full of prizes, and full of gaming! They are a great "first LAN" for newcomers.

Server Down Time

Sometime on Friday July 12th in the mid afternoon most likely. The server will be down for a few minutes as I move it over to a dedicated computer power circuit. Hopefully this will result in less power issues.

Update:  Sorry I didn't post earlier.  This has been postponed as the installer did not have a part to finish the power install today.  I will get it moved over probably next Friday.

PDX Minecraft Signs

So, for those of you who don't know I purchased a 3D printer a few months ago.  And I have been selling some things on the PDXLan website.  So I am bringing the same deal over here.

Custom Printed Sign 2 Colors - $15
PDX Minecraft Sign 2 Colors - $8
PDX Minecraft Sign 1 Color - $5

Shipping in the Lower 48 states is $5 for upto 4 signs. If shipping further we can work that out.

Here is how to order:

Email: 3dprinter@pdxmc.com

Name
Address
Paypal email address

Text wanted Background Color, Text Color, QTY

These are printed on a 3d Printer and have a texture not unlike coarse canvas. Printed in 1 or 2 colors all once piece.

Here are the current available colors, any of these colors can be used together to print the sign.

PDX Minecraft has migrated to a new server.

We have moved over to a new server, and are now running on a Linux based MC server.  Seems to be much faster at loading chunks and if you come accross any issues let any of the staff now, and we will investigate further.

Also as part of the move to a new server box, we have reseeded the nether to get all the new features.  If you need something copied over let an admin know.

Server hardware specifications:
4.2ghz AMD Quadcore FX-4170
16GBs of DDR3 1333Mhz Ram with room to upgrade to 32Gbs of ram.
128gb Samsung 840 pro SSD to run the OS and MC Server
1TB Westerndigital YE4 Server HDD for Webserver and Backups.

Prank: Griefed, and what I am doing about it.

April Fools Prank

Well, bad news folks. Last night someone gained admin rights on the server and griefed the hell out of Arcadia, Xelmons Dom Cathedral, and Yucca Mountian.  See pictures below.  I am working on restoring those areas from a backup copy but there may be some lags while we work to correct the damage.

Please bear with us.
